About Me

TERM TIME ONLY CHILDMINDER
I'm Paula and I'm a registered childminder with the Care Commission for Scotland (Aberdeen City) and a member of the Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA - where I also advertise). I'm married and mum to two girls who are 11 and 4 years old.

I have been inspected by The Care Inspectorate and have grade 5 (very good) in all areas - this can be viewed on the Care Inspectorate website.

My aim is to provide a home from home environment, which is safe, friendly and welcoming for children, who can play and have fun as they learn, which takes into account current legislation and best practice. I attend some local playgroups in the mornings, which usually involve music/singing and/or freeplay. We spend time outdoors making use of local parks and outdoor areas and I also have a large fully enclosed garden. I also use other facilities such as soft play. I aim to encourage free play with a range of natural resources as well as having other enjoyable garden features, such as a water tray, sand tray and outdoor toys. Other materials available are arts & crafts, building blocks, puzzles, books etc. The day to day activities vary, but there is routine when it comes to lunch/snack times and rest times for the younger children. I lead and promote a healthy lifestyle and provide healthy meals and snacks. I hold childcare insurance, have mains fire & smoke detection alarms, first aid cert, food hygiene cert and have studied various childcare modules since becoming approved. I have an 8 seater car, insured for business purposes and a clean driving license.
Usual Opening hours are 8am - 5.30pm

My Experience

I have lots of experience with children - I have a large family with 16 nieces and nephews and 2 girls of my own, who are aged 11 and 4 years old. I have been childminding for three years.
